Why do I need a divorce mediator?

Here are the four reasons why you need a divorce mediator:

  • 1. A divorce mediator allows the couple to come up with their terms of divorce

    The objectivity of the mediator ensures that he doesn't represent the interest of any party. The mediator ensures that they create favorable terms and that they agree on those terms as opposed to what the law will stipulate.

  • 2. A divorce mediator helps to reestablish communication for effective co-parenting

    Communication might have been one of the reasons the marriage failed to work. The divorce mediator gives room for communication through the mediation process. And especially when there are kids, the couple define the terms of their parenting.

    In the process of mediation, the couple will realize the need look beyond their personal wants and place focus on raising their children in a healthy environment even after their divorce.

  • 3. A divorce mediator's service is less expensive than an attorney's

    Hiring a lawyer to give legal advice and argue in your favor in courts is really on the high side. Every time couples make contacts with their lawyers, they pay for their time and at last, the decision is at the mercy of the judge. But with a divorce mediator, spouses pay less and reap the total benefits. Who wouldn't love to just discuss terms and come to agreements quicker and for an affordable price tag too?

  • 4. A device mediator speeds up the process

    The mediator gets everyone present in the same room and at the same time. This ends a lot of miscommunication and settles the divorce pretty much quickly.

The stress and unavoidable time consumption that comes with pushing through with the separation in court is greatly minimized. Couples also, are less likely to return to court after the divorce if they mediated on their divorce agreement than if an attorney was hired to negotiate an agreement.
